Song Of The Day #5: Belt

Aaaaaaaand the song for the day is Belt by Say Anything:

Say Anything knows how to start off an album properly. This is a song about making a stand and having a belt. It's a great song off a great album and sure to get a good sing-a-long going if everyone knows it. It's really good for those days where you just feel kicked down.

Song Of The Day #4: Finding Something To Do

It's that time of day again! Today's song is Finding Something To Do by Hellogoodbye:

These guys really improved their sound from their first album. It's so damn happy! This is a sweet little song about generally being ridiculously in love. Really, the whole album is this way: good fun catchy pop. It's worth a listen even if you didn't like their first one.

Song Of The Day #3: Sick On Sunday

Today's song of the day is Sick On Sunday by The Dillinger Escape Plan:

The noises in this song are really freaking gross. It's the visceral crunches, the hectic pace, it just gives this feeling of almost fright that I don't really hear conveyed often in music. It smooths off at the end too into a great little vocal bit. It's a wonderful example of how The Dillinger Escape Plan might be metal as hell and unbelievably heavy but they know how to create a great sound that really works.

Song Of The Day #2: The Luckiest Guys On The Lower East Side

Today's song is The Luckiest Guys On The Lower East Side by The Magnetic Fields:

I recently started listening to their album 69 Love Songs, which is exactly what it sounds like. So far, this is one of my favorite tracks. I'm a sucker for most songs with narratives, and this is a really cute and pleasant song. It's just a nice little ditty and brings a day up with some humor and and a bit of sweetness. Give it a listen!

On an unrelated note, I posted a couple of these around campus today:

Feels good man

Song Of The Day #1: Kissing The Lipless

I was thinking that I needed to be blogging more when an idea hit me:

I could do a song of the day! It's perfect! I like sharing my tastes with others and it'll give me the chance to write about songs as well as a constant flow of content. I'll be picking out songs I like and explaining why I like and picked them. Without further ranting...

My first song is Kissing The Lipless by The Shins.

This is one of those songs that just kinda hit me out of nowhere. I like how it starts soft and then he gets really passionate as it goes on. I also enjoy the vivid visuals in the lyrics. It's one of my favorite songs by them (and I heard it this morning, hence the pick). It's kind of a sad song, but it doesn't really come off that way from his voice.

Anyway, comment and tell me your opinions on it!

EDIT: You know, I feel like I should've wrote more but it's not always easy! I don't really have a lot of personal feelings towards this song or anything so it's difficult to write a lot. I mean, it's more about sharing the song and hearing others comments anyways. Just wanted a disclaimer.
